Add ribbon to this piece and then adhere to the front of the card. 
Next, cut watercolor paper 3 1/4" x 4 3/8", tear 1/4" off the bottom edge and then stamp images in black Stazon ink using the masking technique.
Watercolor images using aqua painter, More Mustard, Pumpkin Pie and Chocolate Chip ink. Don't forget to "paint" a shadow under the pumpkins so they don't look like they are floating in space!
